Southrepps Chorale is hosting a Come & Sing Day on Sat. 6th May.
Southrepps Chorale invites you to Come & Sing: Karl Jenkins ‘The Armed Man’ with us on Saturday, 6 May 2017.
The day will be led by guest director, Malcolm Goldring. Malcolm is Conductor of the Sitwell Singers (Derby), and Musical Director of the Midland Festival Chorus. He has made something of a speciality of ‘The Armed Man’, including performances in Nottingham, Guernsey, Worcester Cathedral, and, in 2014, in London’s Royal Albert Hall to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War, when a choir of 700 was joined by the Philharmonia Orchestra. So we shall be in definitive and experienced hands!
Malcolm will be accompanied by our accompanist Cathy Al-Bay
Southrepps is a village three miles inland from the popular seaside resort of Cromer. It lies 22 miles north of Norwich, 25 miles east of Fakenham or 30 miles west of Great Yarmouth. The singing day takes place in our beautiful 600 year old St. James Church with its modern kitchen, toilets and disabled access. The post code for satnavs is NR11 8NS.
Parking round the church is free but limited. We recommend that you head for the nearby Village Hall carpark.
We also recommend that you bring a cushion to sit on. Malcolm will probably keep you active and frequently on your feet; but you may wish to comfort your posterior.
